The Syracuse University College Republicans hosted Ann Coulter last night, despite being asked to disinvite her. I missed it but I’ve already heard from some friends that it was a fun evening. Dianny was there.
Another great moment was when my GOP-groupie friend and her 4-year old daughter met Ann. Ann told my friend’s little girl, “Democrats want to take all your Christmas presents from you.”
What a hoot! After they got home, my friend texted me to tell me her daughter said she needed to hide her presents so the Democrats wouldn’t get them.
Honestly. Even Liberals would find that cute.
If they have a sense of humor.
Okay. Big if.
Which brings me to my favorite Ann Coulter answer from the evening.
A young woman cited Ann’s recent appearance on Hannity’s Fox show. The woman wanted to know if the comment in question (which apparently she didn’t watch first-hand) was in fact true or if it was taken out of context. The young woman explained that, when discussing the dead Boston terrorist’s wife, who wears a hijab, Ann said the woman should be imprisoned just for wearing the hijab.
Ann reply, “That’s called a joke.”
From behind us, in the back came a contentious chorus of “It wasn’t funny.”
Ann answered, “The feminist slogan has now become the slogan for the entire Democrat Party: ‘That’s not funny.’” (Read More)
Another friend was interviewed by the Post Standard after the event, which drew a crowd of about 400.
People came to the lecture ready for some verbal sparring and many giggled at the door when the College Republicans announced that there would be no recording devices and no glass bottles allowed inside.
Bob Murfitt, an East Syracuse resident who worked on former Rep. Ann Marie Buerkle’s campaign, said Coulter delivered the kind of blunt, sometimes caustic talk he expected and likes to hear.
“I wish more students who didn’t like her had asked her questions,” he said after the talk. “You don’t want to hear people just preaching to the choir. I don’t disagree with anything she said.” (Read More)
From what I hear the liberals in attendance behaved themselves, which is a nice change.
